POLL: Which 2012 Blockbuster Are You Most Anticipating?

In 2011 the overall Box Office was down 3.5 percent compared to 2010. However with movies like The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Hobbit, and yes, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (Part 2) due out in 2012, I have a feeling that is not going to be the case again. I have a feeling that this is going to be a year where we will see several Box Office records broken.

Part of the reason for the probable success is that these movies will be nicely spaced out throughout the year. Summer isn’t the only place for blockbusters anymore with Breaking Dawn 2 and The Hobbit both coming out around the holidays next year.

It is easy to get excited about the big releases in any given year, thanks in large part to the massive marketing campaigns that begin months early. Not everybody has heard about the next great foreign film or independent comedy that is on the horizon, but everybody knows what Christopher Nolan or Peter Jackson have been up to. That is why this week’s poll concerns only those big films.

We want to know, which of these major 2012 blockbuster are you most anticipating? The options are below and be sure to share your reasoning in the comments.

    This looks like it might be a good year for blockbusters. I just hope the indie and foreign fare steps it up a notch from last year and my viewing will be complete.

  • I am looking forward to “The Dark Knight Rises”, but who isn’t? I can’t say much for “Prometheus”, as much of its buzz has been from the trailer, which I haven’t seen, and am not likely to. As far as blockbusters go, I think we shouldn’t count out “John Carter” just yet. A great deal of the marketing has been a complete mess, but I’m hoping that’s not too indicative of the film.

    “The Hunger Games” is bound to go towards the same kind of gargantuan business the “Twilight” series is doing, but I think it actually looks rather interesting, and possibly entertaining. And I’d also say I’m rather excited for “Skyfall”, though there’s no way of telling what it will actually be about. I do like the casting of Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes, but I’m still wondering to what end it serves.

  • Call it a hunch….but I got this crazy feeling that Wong Kar Wai’s ‘The Grandmasters’ is going to beat all these movies in the Box Office this year.

  • Genadijus

    At the begining of 2011 a lot of people thought that “War Horse” will be a real epic blockbuster…. no it looks otherwise…. So none of these films wil win Best Picture. I’m counting on P. T. Anderson’s “Master”, this one looks really promising, probably amazing directing and acting for sure.

    I can’t be the only one who is emberassed by the low number for Prometheus or that the new Spider-Man movie is being beaten by Twilight.
